A Giveaway with Lauren Merrick




If you've been hanging around The Beetle Shack for a while you would've heard Lauren's name pop up more than once. Merrick is a talented illustrator with gift for innocent, endearing characters (ehum, much like those pictured above) and fruity typography. Her work is contemporary whilst maintaining individuality and creative integrity. Gauche, watercolour and high quality paper complete her kit. However, her skills aren't limited to the paint brush. Merrick is also available for customised blog headers, wedding invitations, birth announcements (that was ours that you can see above), party invitations and graphic design. She has recently opened an online store to sell prints of her beautiful watercolour works and a range of fabulous cards.

It must also be said that Lauren is a darling friend to our family. She is a gorgeous thing who comes and plays with my children with such excitement and intentionality that her visits always leave me smiling from ear to ear.

You can find Lauren Merrick Illustration on Facebook here, read her inspiring blog here, check our her portfolio here or shop from her range of cards and prints here. If you would like to order a customised print, card or blog header please contact Lauren here for a quote.

  3. Not on Facebook but pinned on Pinterest. Fingers crossed! I've seen Lauren and bought cards from her at the Olive tree markets a few times and she's always so happy looking, who wouldn't be when you create beautiful art like that! Her cards are always well received when I give them to friends. I'd love to win the family portrait!!

  11. Love love love Lauren's work, I have been considering commissioning her for a birth announcement for our wee Winter babe? Would love to win this...
    I've been thinking of getting a watercolour done of our new/old little home which we are moving back to in a few days, and hopefully where we will settle and raise our children as fourth generation on the family farm. Think this is something Lauren could do? Hmmm...

  12. What a lovely giveaway! Lauren's work is so beautiful :) I paint custom portraits too and it would make me so happy to have one of my own family (you know what it's like...the shoemaker's children) So I am crossing my fingers and hopping over to see more of Lauren's inspiring creations right now xx
